Data Link question

hi all,
just wanted to know what is the purpose of a data link that does not link columns from 2 queries.
it only linked groups instead.

Hi friends i have to query in reports9i
Query 1.
SELECT as challan,g.issue_date,gd.item_type,g.sale_order_id,g.supplier_name,g.prod_name,g.colour,g.xs,g.s,g.m,g.l,g.xl,g.pcs,g.issue_for FROM
gin g,gin_detail gd
where =
and = :p_id;
Query 2.
SELECT rownum,id,name,issue_qty,unit FROM
WHERE item.code = gin_detail.item_code AND
id =:challan;
i have two two repeating frames and set the field
Query1 as master and Query 2 as detail
and the result is ok on reports when i call through forms it will not show the desired result
second query is not showing any result

  • Data links Questions on Reports Builder

    We are currently using Reports Builder We are trying to create a topology report. So, we have about 5 queries in the data models which are linked using a query links with Child Destination column in the child query.
    So, here is the example:
    Q1 --> Q2 (joined with Q1 child) --> Q3 (joined with Q2 child) --> Q4 (joined with Q3 child)--> Q5 (joined with Q4 child).
    So, the problem we are experiencing is when Q2 has same child twice, the Q2 query is actually sending the same child id to Q3 twice (or however many times its repeating). Is there any way to distinct the child so we get only one child sent to Q3?
    Here is an example:
    Parent Child
    A1 B1
    A2 B2
    A3 B3
    Parent Child
    B1 C1
    B1 C2
    B2 C1
    Parent Child
    C1 D1
    C1 D1
    C2 D3
    Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You are on the right track, here is how our structure looks like:
    Street, City
    Query 2
    City, State
    Query 3
    State, Country
    And Queries are linked using group links.
    Here is an example:
    Query 1 results:
    Street1 City1
    Street1 City2
    Query 2 results:
    City1 State1
    City1 State2
    City2 State3
    City2 State1
    Query 3 results:
    State1 Country1
    State1 Country1
    State2 Country4
    State3 Country5
    Note: example is not realistic, i know. just wanted to give you picture.
    So, the repeating frame for Query3 gets Stateid from Query2 one by one rather than collect it and distinct it, hence the duplicates. I hope this explains it.

  • BPC 7.5NW External Data Links

    Hi All u2013
    This question is in regards to a BPC 7.5 NW (SP8) input schedule stored in BPC with externally linked MS Excel 2007 spreadsheets stored outside BPC.
    I have built an input schedule (which is stored in a team folder) and linked external excel spreadsheets into the schedule. My EVDRE is in Sheet1. Sheets2 u2013 5 contain the links to my non-BPC workbooks.
    My problem is that when I use the u201CSend and Refresh Schedulesu201D u2013 u201CActive worksheetu201D, multiple windows pop-up for updating the links in the non-active (external data linked) worksheets. Does anyone have a better way to link data external to BPC in a schedule or report? If not, is there a way to stop these pop-ups?
    Thank you!

    Can you try as follows:
    workbook options> Refresh Options> Check EVDRE : Refresh by Sheet.

    For   some   reason,   now   when   they   try   to   'Refresh'   data   in   the   Excel   spreadsheet,   Excel  
    freezes   and   then   crashes.
    I   believe   it's   because   the   'Microsoft   Data   Link'   is   failing,   during   set-up.    Below   are

  • Data archieving  questioner required

    Dear All,

    SAP Data Archiving
    1.0 Introduction to Enterprise Data Archiving
    Currently, a large number of enterprises use SAP R/3 as a platform for integration of business processes. The continuous usage of SAP results in huge amounts of enterprise data, which is stored in SAP R/3. With passage of time, the new and updated data is entered into the system while the old data still resides in the SAP enterprise system.
    Since some of the old data is critical, it cannot be deleted. The difficulty is keeping the data you want, and deleting the data you do not want. Hence, a SAP database keeps on expanding rapidly and enterprise systems, which have limited data retention abilities for a few years, suffer from problems such as data overflow, longer transaction processing times, and performance degradation.
    The solution of this problem has led to the concept of Data Archiving in SAP. Data Archiving removes out-of-date data from the SAP database that the R/3 system does not need online, but can be retrieved on a later date, if required. This data is known as archived data and is stored at an offline location. Data Archiving not only consistently removes data from the database but also ensures data availability for future business requirements.
    One rule of thumb is that in a typical SAP enterprise system, the ratio of data required to be online and instantly accessible to old data, which could be archived, and stored offline is 1:6. For example, if an enterprise has 2100 GB of SAP database, the online data, which is frequently used by SAP users will be 300 MB and the rest (1800 MB) will be scarcely used and hence can be archived.
    1.1 Data Archiving u2013 Features
    It provides a protection layer to the SAP database and resolves underperformance problems caused by huge volumes of data. It is important that SAP users should keep only minimal data to efficiently work with database and servers. Data archiving ensures that the SAP database contains only relevant and up-to-date data that meet your requirements.
    Data archiving uses hardware components such as hard disks and memory. For efficient data archiving, minimum number of disks and disk space should be used.
    It also reduces the system maintenance costs associated with the SAP database. In the SAP database there are various procedures such as, data backup, data recovery, and data upgrade.
    SAP data archiving complies with statutory data retention rules that are common and well-proven techniques.
    SAP data archiving can be implemented in two ways. In the next section both options will be discussed in detail.

  • Can't see the ESS Additional Personal Data link within Personal Information

    Hi All,
    For some reasons, I can not see the Additional Personal Data link within the ESS Personal Information iView. I have checked the Homepage framework and the existence of the iView in the PCD and everything appears to be fine.
    Do I need to assign any additional infotype to my id or give myself specific authorisations to see this link?
    I would really appreciate if you could provide an answer to my query.

    I think mostly you have maintained the data in PA30 Transaction and had data in Info type 0105.
    After this try to check with your EA-HR patch and SAP HR patch in the services. If  both are not maintained at the same patch levels such type of problems will occur.

  • Issue using data link in XML Publisher

    Dear All,
    I am new to XML Publisher, for the first time trying data link concept in XML Publisher tool. The issue is very simple, I have two queries Q1(say it fetches sales_order_number, application_name ) and Q2 (say it fetches sales_order_number , error_number, error_description). And sales_order_number is passed as input using data link to Query Q2 from query Q1 and Q2 will retrive more than one row for a given sales_order_number.
    Say for a given dept_name 1001 the output will be something similiar like
    SO# | Appl.Name
    1001 | 'Invoice '
    SO# | Error.# | Error Desc
    1001 | 1512 | No Data Found
    1001 | 1513 | Invalid Entry
    1001 | 2674 | Error while inserting the record
    and the query which I have used in XML template goes like this
    <sqlStatement name="Q1">
    <![CDATA[select sales_order_number, application_name                 
                      from T1
                     where sales_order_number = :in_sales_order_num]]>
    <sqlStatement name="LINES">
    select sales_order_number , error_number, error_description
    from T2]]>
    <link name="Dummy_LINK" parentQuery="Q1" parentColumn="sales_order_number" childQuery="Q2" childColumn="sales_order_number" condition="="/>
    And the grouping is as follows
    <group name="G_Q1" source="Q1">     
         <element name="sales_order_number" value="sales_order_number"/>
         <element name="application_name" value="application_name"/>     
    <group name="G_Q2" source="Q2">
         <element name="sales_order_number" value="sales_order_number"/>
         <element name="error_number" value="error_number"/>
         <element name="error_description" value="error_description"/>     
    And in the RTF template I have properly used <?for-each:G_Q1?> <?for-each:G_Q2?>- --
    <?end for-each?><?end for-each?>
    Ideally the header (Q1) should have one row and the lines (Q2) should have 3 rows. But the issue here is even Q1 produces 3 rows.
    If in case Q2 has 4 records, then Q1 also plots 4 records in the report output. Hope I am explaining the issue correctly. Any help to resolve the issue would be a great. Thanks in advance.

    try like this
    <?if: (TYPE='A') or (TYPE= 'B')?><TABLE STRUCTURE><?end if?>
    <?if:contains('A~B', TYPE )?><TABLE STRUCTURE> <?end if?>

  • Convert data link between one query's group and another querys group to SQL

    I have a report where there are 2 query Groups. These 2 query groups r linked by data link. How do i combine these queries to One query so i can use it as a SQL query.

    Assume that we have two queries Q1 and Q2 and the common column between the two queries is "comn".
    Now we can convert the datalink into SQL as follows:-
    SELECT *
    (Query for Q1)a,
    (Query for Q2)b
    WHERE a.comn=b.comn(+)
    Note: "a" and "b" are alias names for Q1 and Q2.

  • Can Data Links be established between Data sets based on View Objects?

    Hi all,
    In the BI Publisher Documentation it's given that Datasets based on view object queries do not support Data Links / Group Links. We found out that only way to establish relationship between view object Datasets is to create a view link and then upload it to create a Dataset.
    1. Is there any other way to establish relationship between view objects Datasets in DataModel editor itself just as in the case of data sets based on (SQL queries e.t.c.)?
    2. If so can View object Datasets be linked to Datasets based on other Datasources?
    3. Will the Datalinks for View object Datasets be supported in any of the upcoming releases. Is there any ER logged for this case?
    Any insight on the above issues will be really helpful.

    Enhance the data source with date and time and populate these fields in the user exit using the function module IB_CONVERT_FROM_TIMESTAMP .
    You can create Z function module IB_CONVERT_FROM_TIMESTAMP in BW side and write a routine in update rules/transfer rules to populate date and time.
    hope this helps ...

  • "Exception Processing Message" error when clicking the Accessing Server Data link on the start page

    When I first started the application, I click the Accessing Server Data link on the start page.  I immediately got the error "Exception Processing Message c0000013 Parameters 75b6bf7c 4 75b6bf7c 75b6bf7c in a dialog box titled "Windows - No Disk".  I had to used Task Manager to remove the box after closing Flash Builder 4.  I then tried the video tutorial on "PHP Services in Flash Builder 4".  I keep receiving an error during service introspection trying to connect to the PHP class.  It was the same error as the other individual "Cannot Connect to PHP Service".  So I tried another tutorial and generated a sample PHP class.  I moved a datagrid on to the stage, droped in the getAllItems function, and configured the return type.  However, when I ran the app, I received the same error "Exception Processing Message" again.  I have attached the screenshot of the error in addition to my phpinfo and log files.

    "The exception process message" is definitely a issue. Is it happening consistently, if so can you file a bug at and give out your machine config details, and the error log.
    With regards to generating a new php file and the introspection error that you are getting, looking at the logs it probably is two fold.
    First off the name of the file and the class name should be the same, are you having employeeServices as the name of the class in employeeServices.php file.
    Second, It seems prior to generating this new file, you had a syntax error at line 5.
    It would be easier to figure out what the error is, if you can also attach the php file, by removing any sensitive information in that.
    Hope this helps.

  • Why do I get the symbol data link in the query_name of the data model

    If I use an inline subquery within the SELECT of a data model query, the symbol data link appears in the query_name of the data model.
    This causes the data link between two queries not to be used even if there is an existing link between the two. The trace file doesn't
    have that join condition and so the child query in which the inline subquery was added fetches many redundant data.
    Any idea what that symbol represents and how to get rid of it. It also appears during other times, not only when we use inline subquery
    within a SELECT. Not sure if it can cause any harm to the report.
    The problem is seen in Report Builder Not sure if the problem is with other releases also.
    Any suggestions are welcome.

    I am living with the symbol in the query box as well, because my report only has a single query. My query also has several inline subqueries. I had never seen this before last week, spent a day re-reading the manuals and couldn't figure it out.
    My post is not a solution, but a "me too" echo that could use an answer.
